The Jubilee Party has now been caught up in an ugly dispute regarding the ownership of the property where its Nairobi branch offices are situated.
The building, located along Musa Gitau road just before Kangemi, had previously acted as the headquarters for the Party of National Unity that is now headed by Meru Governor Peter Munya.
However, Munya and other PNU officials have accused Jubilee of forcefully and illegally ejecting them from their offices.
PNU’s Nairobi branch Chairman Fredrick Kimathi has now warned that his team will not sit and watch as their land is taken away.
He revealed that a group of 200 youth on Monday stormed the building and painted it with PNU colours, just three months after Jubilee had rebranded it.
Kimathi claimed that they had the title deed for the land which had been in their possession since 2012 when the late George Saitoti made the purchase while serving as PNU’s party Chairman.
However, the turn of events was contradicted by Starehe MP Maina Kamanda who claimed that the title belonged to the Mt Kenya Foundation (MKF) which evicted PNU after they were unable to pay the loan.
Kamanda claimed that Jubilee has receipts for the Sh300,000 monthly rent that Jubilee pays to MKF.
MKF is a non-profit organization that brings together a group of billionaires and wealthy businessmen from Mt Kenya and has been known to make generous contributions to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election campaign.
